Residential Development Council

Home Our Divisions Residential Development Council

The Residential Development Council is the leading representative for Australia’s residential developers, providing powerful advocacy on behalf of the industry that drives Australia’s economy. We proudly lead the conversation for the industry that hands over the keys to 600 new homes each day, and plays a critical role in addressing Australia’s housing affordability crisis. 

We champion efficient housing supply and choice, and have the trust of governments around the country. Through research and thought leadership on tax, planning, development and environmental approvals, our objective is to encourage best practice principles and greater Federal government leadership to improve housing affordability. We also work to encourage new development opportunities for our members, such as build-to-rent (BTR).

This page collates our suite of information, resources, industry committees and events related to the residential and BTR sector.

Industry Committees are made up of 12-25 property professionals from around Australia, who are experts in the relevant field. Committees meet every four to six weeks to discuss issues and projects relevant to their expertise and the focus of the Committee.

Being selected as a member of a Property Council Committee gives you the opportunity to help shape the future and influence the organisation’s advocacy agenda. Members have the opportunity to contribute to important, focused industry discussions while building their professional networks and knowledge. 

As part of our 40-40-20 commitment to gender equity, all our Committees comprise a minimum of 40 per cent female representatives. Committee members are appointed for a two-year term, with the current Committees commencing their tenure in February 2023.
